Weekend Cycling Events

Well it has been quite awhile since we have posted one of these, but since there are a few things going on this weekend, we figured that we would give them to you in a list.

Readers if you know of something happening that you don’t see listed here, put it into the comments section for everyone to see.


Minnetonka Ice Race – Hey it’s ice racing season again, and the weather changed right on cue.  Hardcore racers will start at 10:30am, Novices at 11:30am, after party at McCormick’s Pub and Restaurant for the awards. Day of event registration will be available on site.  Hardcore Registration will close at 10AM.  Novice/Intermediate Registration will close at 11AM.  Even if you are racing, these are fun to watch, check out our gallery from last year.


Midtown Greenway Open House/Happy Hour –  From the Greenway Website:

Do you like the Greenway, learning about cool transit issues, and beer?  Of course you do.  Come enjoy all three on Saturday, January 21st in the Coalition office at our Transit Seminar/Happy Hour!  The schedule for the day is:


3 p.m. Streetcars in the Greenway: Our wonderful MN Greencorps member, Michelle, will be talking about the history and future of proposed rail transit in the corridor.


4 p.m. Winter Biking on a Budget: Bike Walk Ambassador David Peterson will share top-secret tips and tricks on gearing up for winter riding without emptying your wallet.


5-6:30 p.m. Open House and Happy Hour: Drink delicious New Belgium beer and learn about exciting volunteer opportunities and upcoming events with the Midtown Greenway Coalition.


The Coalition office is located at 2834 10th Avenue S, Greenway Level, Suite 2.  Enter Freewheel Midtown Bike Center from the Greenway, and take a left!


Freewheel Frozen Frolic – After having the first in the three race series cancelled due to nice weather (what?!) the Frozen Frolic continues this Sunday at Murphy Hanrehan. Registration opens at 10am race starts at 11am.


If you are headed to any of these events and want to give CTC a re-cap, that would be great, just contact us.
